Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5474) Speed up message splitting in build
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2011 01:16:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5474?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13134679#comment-13134679

Bryan Pendleton commented on DERBY-5474:

Well, it was <javac> and <java> tasks that we were forking, so I think it was
definitely JVM forking.

But, it was mostly on Linux boxes. I don't think we had a single Solaris machine in that build

Another thing is that our machines tended to be massively over-provisioned with real memory,
so that
might also make forking fast.

On your laptop, do you have JAVA_OPTS or ANT_OPTS or other parameters that might control the
virtual memory size of the Ant and/or forked Java processes?

I rather doubt it's worth pursuing my old memories very far. I see no reason not to remove
the forking,
since as you say it was wholly unnecessary. So it can't hurt, and since it demonstrably helps
at least
some environments, I say full speed ahead!

> On a slow machine I sometimes use to build Derby, running the org.apache.derbyBuild.splitmessages
tool takes 30 seconds and accounts for 15% of the total time needed to run "ant -q buildsource"
(which builds the engine, the network server and the client, but not the tests or demos).
The tool is invoked 15 times, and each time a new Java process is started because the Ant
target has specified fork="yes". By changing it to run the splitmessages tool in the same
Java process as the one running Ant, the time is reduced to 3-4 seconds on the same machine.
